As the film industry continues to struggle in the US, Tom Cruise might just be the saviour the industry needs.
In leaked audio, Cruise is heard to be blasting workers on the set of Mission: Impossible for failing to physically distance.
In the audio released by the Sun tabloid, Cruise warns that anyone caught not following the rules to stay at least two metres away from others will be fired.
The film is currently being filmed in Britain.
Cruise also said: “If I see you doing it again, you’re f*cking gone and if anyone on this crew does it, that’s it … No apologies.”
In his tirade, Cruise spoke of the challenges the industry has faced during the coronavirus pandemic and how many people have lost jobs as a result.

Zoetropes, a praxinoscope, early projectors, and a phenakistoscope have all been used to channel what is considered a monumental moment for carmaker Volkswagen in a new short by Johannes Leonardo. Directed by Sam Brown, the 90-second film ‘The Wheel’ uses some of the oldest devices of motion in film—the Zoetrope (praxinoscope, early projectors, and phenakistoscope)—as […]
